I cannot think beyond Scottish kilts when it comes to this week’s CASology cue:
Despite having a little Scottish blood running in my veins, there is not a lot of plaid in my life, and that includes my patterned paper stash. So, I once again went in search of something digital, and found a fabulous assortment of plaid patterns here at Mein Lila Park! Actually, Mein Lila Park has all sorts of pretty patterned paper – well worth a look!
What do you think? Can you hear bagpipes?
For those seeking elusive plaid, I have scored two parallel vertical lines, intersecting with three parallel horizontal lines. Look carefully – you can just seem them.
If this layout looks familiar to you, it’s because I have CASE’d a wonderful Latisha Yoast design, found in a superb reference book called Clean & Simple Cards. Unfortunately, I don’t have an electronic copy of her card, but I have tried to re-create Latisha’s fabulous diagonal layout, which extended from a ribbon knot at the top of her card, to some embellishments at the bottom.
Clean & Simple Cards, created by Tami Mayberry , isn’t a new book, but as the basics of design theory do not change, it is a timeless resource! I stumbled upon it in my local library, and the time has come for me to buy a copy instead of repeatedly borrowing it.
With that said, please take a look at how the rest of the Design Team was inspired:

Thanks so much for popping by, and I look forward to your plaid creations in the Gallery!
